Sitting at my desk and one of the HR girls comes up (HR is downstairs and I’m upstairs) she notices my ring and asks about it. I tell her when I got engaged and show her a pic of my soon to be hubby and she responds with, “Your getting married?! To him?!!!!” like it was a bad thing! She then proceeded to tell me I looked like I was 16 and she didn’t realize I was older (ok understandable??) but then she says that she hopes our future kids get my looks….Um did you just call my FH ugly? I wanted to punch her in the face. She was not joking and she was being openly rude. I think FH is adorable but even if he wasn’t how can someone say something like that? I didn’t say anything and I really wish I had, anyone else ever have a similar situation? Ugh!!! I’m still fuming.

Omg, who says that? Even if you think it, why would you say that out loud? I wouldn’t even say that to someone I dislike. What a jerk. I imagine the reason for it, aside from having no filter, is that she’s at least a lil jealous. She’s trying to take the wind out of your sail, don’t let her.

Screw these people.
You should say “yeah, I’m thinking about breaking off the engagement b/c he is ugly” just to see the look on her face.

That’s totally unbelievable, and yes, particularly from someone in HR! I guess you can take that as a semi compliment to YOU but seriously, how rude.
I love that you called your Fiance adorable and really, that’s all that matters. Also, if other people know how wonderful he is to you and how happy he makes you all the other stuff really doesnt matter.
That lady seriously needs a lesson from Miss Manners.

@roxy – thats what I thought!!!! She’s in freakin HR she should have more tact than that!! And honestly I’m not just saying it b/c I’m marrying him, but FH is actually an attractive person! He might not look like Brad Pitt but he doesn’t look like yoda!!

That is truly hateful. What did she think these comments were accomplishing? If I was you I’d calm myself by relishing in the fact that she is clearly a spiteful asshole, and you are marrying the man you love.

Oh my goodness, what a butt-head! I would nicely ask to see a pic of her husband/BF, and when she tells you she doesn’t have one (which I am sure she doesn’t with tact like that) I would simply say “Oh”… and then go back to work.
I apologize in advance for the snarkiness… :p

That is way out of line. I would be so livid!
Maybe she was trying to give you a compliment and just failed HORRIBLY doing it (verbal diarehea much) i.e.: since she said you looked 16 (fail), maybe she was trying to imply that she wanted your children to age well as you have???
Still way way beyond rude, to both you and your FH. Effing unbelievable she is HR.
I really do not understand where people get off commenting on peoples agelookslife choices. It is 2010, leave your biases, prejudices and superficial attitudes in the last century, where they belong plzkthnx.
